Best Ways to Watch
The Hopper platform gives DISH customers the best ways to keep up with all of the action, with features including BracketView, DISH Anywhere, Multi-View, College Sports Multi-Channel View, Game Finder and now the first-of-its kind DraftKings app.
Bracket Challenge App
On top of the chance to win $1 million, the Bracket Challenge app is perfect for tracking live, upcoming and completed games in all four regions (Midwest, East, West and South), as well as real-time scores and game stats. Even better, you can navigate the app without exiting a game you’re watching — it will continue playing in the top left corner of your TV screen.
The first-of-its-kind DraftKings app integration on the Hopper platform allows you to access sportsbook and daily fantasy contest features while watching any live, on-demand or recorded DISH content. Keep track of scores, stats and set recordings all without leaving your current program. If you have a DraftKings account, you can initiate bets directly from your TV.
No matter where you are, DISH Anywhere gives you the ability to watch 100 percent of your live, on-demand and recorded content on up to five mobile devices at one time.
For the tournament’s feverish slate of first- and second-round games, DISH’s Multi-View on Hopper 3 gives fans the ability to watch up to four games simultaneously on one TV screen — ensuring you don’t miss a single, nail-biting moment or key play.
Plus, you can easily toggle among the four channels to determine which will play audio. To launch Multi-View, click the “Options” button on your remote, select “Picture in Picture” and then “Multi-View.”
College Sports Multi-Channel View
While Multi-View is only available on Hopper 3, all Hopper, Wally and Joey customers can still watch multiple games at once with DISH’s College Sports Multi-Channel View. Available on channels 100 and 151 in the programming guide, this view shows up to four preselected channels on one screen.
With the Game Finder app, Hopper customers can easily find tournament games, up to eight days in advance. What’s more, Game Finder enables you to select your favorite teams for easy searching, view up-to-the-minute box scores and tune in to live games sorted by excitement ratings from Thuuz. Check out Game Finder in the Apps menu or on channel 152 in the programming guide.
